Campground Report: Nine Eagles State Park Campground, Davis City, IA


Road to Nine Eagles Lake
I had a wonderful walk to Nine Eagles lake from the RV campground and shot this along the way. It’s been altered on the computer in order to give it a dream-like quality.

The campground is part of Nine Eagles Park State Park. Perhaps I should say campgrounds, plural, as there are three separate campgrounds: one for RVs with electrical hookups, one for tent camping and one for equestrian camping, the latter two without electricity. The park includes 67 acre Nine Eagles lake where people boat, swim and fish. There is a picnic shelter and boat ramp at the lake. Note that only rowboats and boats with electric motors are allowed. I presume canoes, paddle-boards and kayaks are OK too but there is no mention of these in the literature. There are also hiking trails, and in the winter cross country skiing and snowmobiling. I was told by the campground host that after October 31 the campground is unhosted, there are no fees but the water is shut off. I asked if the electricity was turned off too but he wasn’t sure. The area is heavily wooded and I enjoyed a walk along the road from the RV campground to the lake which I’m guessing is about 1.5 miles. READ MORE…
